Fire of Liberty
While members of Congress were fighting for a soundbite on the Big Three network newscasts during today's hearings on progress in Iraq, President Bush was performing a more dignified task. Before a packed audience in the East Room, President Bush presented the family of the late Petty Officer 2nd Class Michael Monsoor with the prestigious Medal of Honor for heroism and his ultimate sacrifice during a September 26, 2006 Navy Seal mission in a dangerous section of southern Ramadi. It just goes to show you that they're are greater things to focus on than mere partisan politics. As always, I honor the service of our gallant warriors and thank God we have folks who go out there everyday to fight the good fight and make the ultimate sacrifice like Petty Officer Monsoor to ensure our safety and way of life.
